Let’s say we meet the guy of our dreams. He’s smart, cute and doing all the right things. A few months go by, and the honeymoon stage is still sailing smoothly. We start getting curious about what he’s really like— beyond the rainbows and sunshine that every relationship starts off with. We’re wondering when that historical first argument is going to happen. We even start getting nervous because surely the day will come when we begin to see those flaws and red flags that maybe we ignored initially. It’s almost inevitable.
We humans are bossy beings. Guys and girls alike— we have things that we need from our partners to make us happy and make things work. It’s pretty normal, to be honest. While there’s no way to know for sure what requirements a man might have for his partner, his birthday might be a good place to start.
Every element and every sign has a specific set of associated qualities that is based on the sun and stars. Learning how our man’s sign operates could help us understand our guys a little bit better. It might even help us to predict what kinds of requests he’ll have for us throughout the relationship.
Water Signs: Emotionally Demanding
The Water Signs of the zodiac spectrum are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. These signs are particularly known for their heightened emotional instincts. They are intensely caring, which can be overwhelming for themselves and anyone on the receiving end of their love.
Water signs have the ability to take in the emotions of their loved ones as their own, as per Tarot.
Because of this, they can become drained and require alone time to refresh their emotional capacity. The passion exhibited by Water Signs often turns into a need for security and reassurance that is not always reciprocated by other signs.
Cancer: They Demand To Be Taken Care Of
As one of the more emotional signs, Cancer men will express their feelings in numerous ways. Their constant change in moods will take their lover on a rollercoaster of sensations. It will take the Cancer man some time to warm up, but once he is reassured that the feelings are real, he will show his true colors.
This man will wait hand and foot on the lover that has unlocked his heart, according to Cafe Astrology. Cancer is most likely to request his lover to perform recurring acts of care. He will want his lover to cook dinner, spend lots of quality time and most importantly— show utmost appreciation.
Scorpio: They Demand Open Communication
A Scorpio man is led by his strong intuition. He may come off as secretive at first as he tries to make sense of his love situation. He will become more transparent with his emotions once he figures out what he believes is his lover’s truths.
Cafe Astrology says that the Scorpio man despises a cold shoulder.
He does not back down from the intensity or passion within the relationship. He would actually prefer to acknowledge any confrontations head-on. For this reason, Scorpio is most likely to demand communication. He will want a partner that will readily and easily communicate no matter what problems arise.
Pisces: They Demand A Fairytale Romance
The Pisces man is a man of strong enthusiasm. The stereotypical romance lies in the hands of this man alone. Cafe Astrology notes that Pisces men exist in a world of ideals and imagination. This can also leave room for them to be creative with their love attempts.
His seemingly gentle manner leads him to request that his partner reciprocate his efforts at all times. The Pisces man will desire their love to mirror a Shakespeare playwright— full of poetry and passion. He will want a selfless, empathic lover with limitless expression, no matter how unrealistic it may seem to others.
Air Signs: Accept Their Sometimes Detached Nature
The Air Signs of the zodiac spectrum are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. These signs are extremely perceptive and have a desire to gain knowledge from diverse sources. According to Tarot, an Air Sign’s ability to detach from emotion and a one-sided perspective can also come off as withdrawn.
An air sign’s withdrawn demeanor can sometimes leave their loved ones second-guessing where their feelings lie.
However, these signs do possess compassion and an expressive side despite how their fellow signs may see them. This side of them is more likely seen through their art, social justice movements, or even new business plans.
Gemini: They Demand A Multi-Tasking, Social Butterfly
Gemini people are notorious for being two-faced. Their personalities tend to come off as fake or uncommitted. However, Geminis often want to look at the whole picture before making decisions. This is no different while they are in a relationship.
The Gemini man rationalizes all sides of a situation, per Cafe Astrology. Just as they cannot always commit to an opinion, Gemini guys often juggle multiple hobbies and activities. Boredom will become an issue if the Gemini man isn’t constantly stimulated. He is very likely to demand that his partner also have numerous interests and be able to juggle a lot. The last thing he needs is someone slowing him down.
Libra: They Demand You Take The Lead Every Now And Again
Libra men care deeply for balance. The love of equality in all areas of life makes them peaceful lovers. Their sensitivity and diplomacy deem them unqualified to make a decision, especially not important ones. According to Cafe Astrology, they fear making the wrong decision, which can result in a lack of decision making at all.
A Libra man will likely want to find a partner that is assertive.
An assured decision maker in his life will stabilize his indecisive lifestyle and make his life less complex. He may not outright demand this quality— but if he knows what is good for him, he will find someone to balance his ways.
Aquarius: They Demand Freedom
The Aquarius Man will leave anyone he comes across as confused. He is seemingly friendly and conversational, however, his poker face game is quite strong. He is a free thinker and he has a complex way of combining logic with any sign of emotion.
According to The Medium, Aquarians have an erratic way of life that does not have notable patterns. They are very likely to demand open-mindedness in their relationships. Asking for conformity will have them feeling restricted and eventually result in conflict. The lover of an Aquarian man has to be comfortable with his freedom and be understanding of his detached behaviors, emotionally and mentally.
Earth Signs: Goal-Getting Is A Must
The Earth Signs of the zodiac spectrum are Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo. With the Earth signs, what they show us is what we get. They have no time for games and will go after what they have set their minds to.
While earth signs are ambitious, their ambition can quickly turn into savagery.
Tarot notes that Earth signs may become greedy for power and material items— which is unappealing to any and every one. Keeping their determination in check can make an Earth signs an amazing leader. Their boss-like vibes will ensure that their loved one’s needs are taken care of no matter what.
Capricorn: They Demand Transparency
The nature of the almighty bull resides within the Taurus man. He is strong, determined and stubborn. His determination can turn his anger in blind rage— destroying anything between himself and the focus of his fury. Cafe Astrology claims that Taurus men put their trust in their loved one’s word.
Unadulterated honesty is a value that they bring to the table and expect from anyone they are involved with. With that being said, we can expect a Taurus man to demand complete transparency and truth from their partners— regardless of how ugly it may be. Otherwise, the beast will be unleashed.
Taurus: They Demand You Trust Their Direction
The conservative Capricorn is all about tradition. He values morality and stability more than most of the other zodiac signs. Some may even find him boring.
Nonetheless, the Capricorn man is serious about handling his business— whether it be in his romance or in his career.
As per Future Scopes, Capricorns take romantic relations slowly because they view their relationships as investments. A Capricorn man is likely to request that his lover allow him to take the lead in the relationship, due to his authoritative tendencies and his traditional attitude. It should not be taken as controlling; this is just how he tends to things he cares about.
Virgo: They Demand You Settle Down
Reason is an important aspect of a Virgo man’s life. Every risk is calculated and every decision is well thought out. Future Scopes says Virgo men find more importance in practicality than sentiment when it comes to love. This is not a man that will want to spend an excessive amount of money on vacation or go to an expensive restaurant for a date night.
He will, however, show his love by planning to buy a house or investing in a good car. The Virgo man will want his lover to be like-minded. He will want someone that can set aside their adventures and use their common sense to settle down.
Fire Signs: Confidence Is Key
The Fire Signs of the zodiac spectrum are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. These signs are characterized by their spontaneous and bold personalities.
Fire signs are also known for their exemplary self-confidence.
Of course, self-confidence is only admirable in moderation— too much is simply a turn-off. This quality comes at the price of Fire signs becoming selfish as they tend to brush off the feelings of others, says Tarot. In spite of this, Fire signs can make fun friends and partners due to their willingness to take risks. When matched with the right person, a Fire sign may be able to balance love and adventure.
Aries: They Demand You Keep Up With Them
Aries men do not have a lot of patience. He may seem impulsive because of his constant need for engagement. He is not a man that will settle and will quickly become annoyed by anyone trying to force it upon him. This is no different in his love life.
According to Cafe Astrology, the Aries man will become bored if he is not receiving the stimulation he needs from his romance. It is likely he will require his lover to be open-minded when dealing with him. Any relationships that are not centered around the desire to explore are as good as non-existent. Slowing down is not on his to-do list.
Sagittarius: They Demand Space
Sagittarius men are almost nomadic in their lifestyle. Their ultimate goal is to see the world. Love is not a priority on their list of destinations, either. In a relationship, Future Scopes notes that romantic commitments are often unable to occur due to the freedom in the Sagittarius lifestyle.
This is not to be misunderstood; Sagittarius men are generous and optimistic when dealing with their loved ones— as long as they are able to love freely.
It is very possible that a Sagittarius man will ask for space away from his partner while he continues to explore. He simply loves the world as much as he loves his partner.
Leo: They Demand A Listener
It is fitting that lions are the symbol for the people of the Leo sign. Leos hold the captivating aura that lions are known for. Their confidence is through the roof, and it takes a lot for them to back down. Future Scopes says Leo men often strike nerves of those around them because of their lack of flexibility in perspectives.
This self-righteous behavior can become arrogant if not well tamed. Leo men might also become offended if someone were to disagree with that they know to be true. It wouldn’t be surprising if a Leo man demanded that his lover listen to him. After all, he is always right.
Most Vocal About Demands: Scorpio
It is important to be vocal about our needs. It would make no sense at all to be in a relationship where we could not be open about what is needed to make our relationship work. Communication is key to making things work.
Of all the signs, we think Scorpio men are the most likely to make sure you know how critical communication truly is.
This won’t be one-sided though. Future Scopes let us know that Sagittarius men are not afraid of addressing an intense situation. They also are open to understanding their partners’ needs and adjusting. We think communication with a Sagittarius man will be very clear.
Most Subtle About Demands: Cancer
Sometimes being too demanding can come off as overly aggressive and be unattractive. We certainly do not want to be scared away from our relationships due to a partner being too bossy. Cancer men are the least likely to tell us outright how they would like to be treated.
Instead, they will lead by example and expect us to follow along— according to Future Scopes. However, this may end up in major miscommunication as well (women are not mind readers either, guys). Cancer men may end up needing help in order to find a balance between indirect hints and forceful emotions.
Most Likely To Compromise: Libra
All relationships require some degree of comprise. Whether it is deciding which movie to watch on date night, or what to name the dog, decisions have to be a team effort.
Libras are hands-down the least likely to have any power struggle when it comes to decision making.
Per Cafe Astrology, Libras want what is fair and will be sure to be peaceful about it. They will often weigh the pros and the cons of each situation before coming to a conclusion. At the end of the day, they want to be a peaceful as possible meaning they may even forfeit a battle before it begins.
Most Likely To Ghost: Sagittarius
Passion is what all of the best romances are made of. The rage and frustration are met with desire amounting to the perfect love story— well, at least that’s what the movies want us to believe. If the passion is one-sided, the other party may find their way out the closest exit. Sometimes they do it quickly and quietly.
If any man were to do this, it would probably be a Sagittarius man. He isn’t focused on love, he just wants to explore the world, as told by Cafe Astrology. The Sagittarius man has no time for anything other than his adventures— his true passion.
